Shrinking TV Recordings

Microsoft Windows

I have recorded several programs from TV but when I want to burn a DVD, I find what I recorded won't fit a single DVD. Does anyone know what software I can use to shrink the recording to make it fit to a single DVD
Thanks !
You have a couple of alternatives.

The simplest is to use your DVD authoring program to create an image file on
your hard disk that is larger than will fit on a DVD. Then use DVDshrink to
reduce the size. There will be a little loss of quality but it should be pretty
decent.

More time consuming is to use a DVD authoring program that will allow you to cut
your file into smaller portions that will fit on DVD. You could also use the
DVR-MS Ripper from www.thegreenbutton.com to extract MPEG2 files then use an
MPEG2 editing program like Womble or TMPGEnc followed by importing the resultant
files into the DVD authoring program of our choice.
I used DVD shrink, and then Recordnow to copy the files to DVD. Where before, I had a DVD Menu, I no longer do. The DVD starts playing immediately, and I have no option to choose the other shows on the disc. Does anyone know what part of the MYDVD is the Menu?
